I've met Dennis a couple times - My old partner Barney & he were once considering guiding together & following them South. ( I had a conversation with him, in the Illinois forum -over there)
They are both from a generation, that like younger folks to respect them.(even if they are full of it 1/2 the time) :roll:
But he has been there done alot - (some good & some bad) I'm sure :-?
He is one of the few who has tried to capitalize on the written word side of SOB hunting & profiting from the resource. Thats when it goes from FUN to Work - & rules & lines, get stricter & fuzzier at the same time. I'd dare say most that want to profit today, are not real Hunters at all. & are ripping off far more than they Help.
What did you guys think when he threatened to sue rio for asking for a listing of the 16 companies that he represents,or the two awards he supposadly won?Every time I read a story by Mr Hunt I just shake my head and wonder where does he come up with this stuff.
UH, yeah, I killed a million geese in over 30,000 hours of experience in the goose field. 2 of them landed on a Dairy Queen where they can see 2,000 miles in every direction. Remeber if you hunt near a dairy queen that CONCEALMENT is a must. We use white sheets with chocolate sprinkles painted on. THIS IS HOW IT WORKS. I hope you learned something from me, and go buy my books.
DENNIS HUNT, friend of the goose hunter!
I guess he also tried to blame the decrease in the Eastern Prairie Population (EPP) of Canada geese a few years ago on tribal hunters in Canada. As with the other issues, I don' t think he ever came up with any evidence.
But that's what makes this country great--fools like him can say and print just about anything they want and fools like me will waste time reading about it and arguing with him :lol:
Thanks guys, I thought some of you might have enjoyed that. :lol:
I honestly have started to wonder if the guys a compulsive liar or something. The stuff he says is unbelievable and he's gotten caught in so many lies now (the comapnies, the awards :eyeroll: ). At first I thought he was just kind of strange but now I really wonder if he's all there???
I hunt Manitoba and was up there when he got busted. The wife of a real good landowner friend of mine saw the bust on her way home from town, Wildlife officials, Mounties, the works. He wasnt very well liked and he was screwing things up for US hunters. I sure was glad to see him put out of business up there, things have settled down considerably since then. There is a big family of Icelanders that had a lot of land that simply would not let Americans hunt thier land because of him.
Dennis has NOT been banned from the refuge.The MN moderator took out some of his posts.Also David locked up the threads where he spammed his books.He also sent him a PM asking him not to spam unless he wants to be a Business contributer.
